Yeah it's already fixed. That was my bad I had used an earlier version of the final portion of the review rather than the update.

Re: eFootball PES 2021 Season Update Review - Worthy Gameplay Updates Mixed With Lega

I'm liking PES 21. It's funny you mentioned the ball physics as that was one of my favorite bits last year and that continues. I love that the ball can just bounce into open space like in real life. It's also one of the areas that I struggle with in switching back and forth with FIFA. The physics or lack there of in FIFA throws me from time to time in PES.

I found a reddit post about the tactics problem in PES 20 and while I don't believe the user has updated it for 21 yet I'm going to try and apply them in for the update and see how it plays. Watching everyone play long balls was my biggest frustration in 20.

I'm enjoying this year so far and will hold off updating the game until I hear good things about future data packs.

Kevin, I always enjoy reading your articles. Very detailed and love that you also show gameplay videos to go along with your reviews. I was on the fence on purchasing 21, since I already have 20. This article sold me. Thanks again!

The weight of the ball just makes it seem like you can feel powered up shots and passes. If you can, post that reddit thread. It's hard going back and forth between PES & FIFA just because of the controls but yeah, the sense of weight and movement PES has.....man I wish it was in FIFA.

Thanks bransen! I like letting you guys see what I see plus it helps to break my long articles lol.

I'm going to try and make even more videos for PES & FIFA this year. Stuff on tactics, formations, etc...

If you guys have any suggestions on the types of things you'd like to see by all means post 'em. PES is a complex game and Konami doesn't do the best job at explaining things.
